Chiefs DE Isaiah Buggs is reportedly facing two misdemeanor warrants after being accused of animal cruelty in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Continuing a long offseason for Kansas City centered around Rashee Rice's legal saga and other off-field issues, this is just the latest example of a Chiefs player causing problems as the team tries to become the first in NFL history to win three straight Super Bowls.

This is Buggs' second season with the Chiefs after originally being drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Can we go one week without some off-field issue? This is getting a bit ridiculous at this point.

According to a petition reported by Patch, authorities responded to a report to find "a grey and white pitbull on the screened-in back porch surrounded in feces, with no access to food or water."

It continues that in addition to finding a pitbull, "those responding reported finding a black Rottweiler mix locked in a metal cage in direct sunlight with no access to food or water...A neighbor also told police that the dogs had been on the back porch for at least 10 days."

The pitbull was euthanized, though the Rottweiler mix is "still in the care of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Animal Shelter and pending a ruling in court over whether Buggs should be allowed to own it or any other animals."

Buggs has spent time with the Steelers and Lions prior to joining the Chiefs.

If the allegations are accurate, Buggs should be cut from the Chiefs immediately and not allowed to possess animals moving forward. He never made it on the field for Kansas City and there's no reason to keep him on the roster moving forward.
